-- CNN John King - Romney has Jeb Bush endorsement "Wrapped Up" in Florida. --

Heh. That and five bucks will get you a Starbuck$ coffee.

I think it would be great if a Jeb Bush endorsement was a negative.

Sarah should get on the phone with CNN tonight and name her terms.

To cut her off for Ron Paul?

That’s it.

She should copy Living Dead and say “Newt came to SC to do 2 things, chew bubblegum and kick Mitt Romney’s ass. Tonight it looks like he’s all out of bubble gum”

Has Mitt congratulated Newt? Did I miss that?

I don't know. I don't watch television so if it happened I may not know about it. It's still pretty early in the evening for a concession speech. Less than 5% of precincts have reported.

Newt wasn't thinking big enough when he suggested two others exit. Maybe now he'll suggest three depart!

(that's tongue-in-cheek, as he will think it, and I'm thinking it, but saying it would be obviously quite arrogant)

That may not matter much. The GOP rank and file isn't all that interested in marching to the beat of the Party leaders.

Spartanburg flipped back again.

Still for Romney:

Charleston, Richland, Kershaw, Newberry, Fairfield, Clarendon.

Everywhere else looks like it’s for Newt.

Only Richland and Charleston are solid Romney.

Lexington, Anderson, Greenville, Spartanburg, Oconee, Bamberg, Colleton, Marion and Lee counties are still competitive.

York is a contest between Newt and Santorum, Santorum is at 28 there.

Santorum has very little money and he will have even less after SC. He may not want to get out, but I suspect that he’ll have no option.

Sorry, been replying to folks.

26 Romney
18 Santorum
13 Paul.

Santorum creeping up. Has a shot at second here, since all the Romney areas are pretty much in.

That may be the horse’s mouth, but it’s way behind the numbers at the NY Times, which already has Mr. Gingrich with more votes than the totals show on the S.C. Election Commission web page.

I have a feeling Mittens is going to WIMP out of any more debates, since he couldnt talk his way out of a paper bag against Newt! The only way Mittens WILl debate is if Santorum is right by his side, helping him bash Newt! (Forgive me, but Santorum and his recent petulant tantrum like behavior has completely turned me off to him—at least as far as being a viable POTUS is concerned...we already have a temper tantrum tossing child there, we dont need another one!

Today I am really wishing FR had a “ Ignore this poster” button!

Do what I do: remember the names of the FReepers whose posts you think are a waste of time. Glance at the bottom to see its author before you start to read, and if it's by such-and-such or so-and-so, just scroll down to the next post and save yourself the aggravation.

I used to wish for an "ignore this poster" option on FR, especially as I'd gotten so used to it on other forums. But over the years, I've come to really appreciate its absence. I believe it makes me a better FReeper. On FR, I have to take resonsibility for what I post and for what I read.
